Fresh Herbs

Say yes to Oregano

The secret to well-flavored, well-seasoned dishes often lies in the utilization of fresh herbs. Healthy and delicious, herbs are a fantastic way to add flavor - and not a lot of fat or calories - to a wide range of palate-pleasing recipes.

This staple of Italian cooking has the highest antioxidant level of 39 different types of common kitchen spices, and it is believed to be one of the most antioxidant dense of all foods – even blueberries! Antioxidants play a key role in repairing and preventing cellular damage, and a diet rich in Antioxidants may slow signs of aging, and reduce risk for various types of cancer.

Because it is so antioxidant rich, a little oregano really goes a long way nutritionally. Here are a few flavorful suggestions for adding oregano to your daily diet:

Salads: Sprinkle dry or fresh oregano into pasta salads and potato salads. For green salads, add oregano directly to the salad dressing.

Soups: Oregano adds a little kick to all kinds of soups. Whether your soup is canned or homemade, adding a dash of oregano will enhance the flavor and the nutrition!

Grilled meats: Oregano complements all types of meat: beef, pork, chicken, lamb, even fish! Make an easy seasoning for any grilled food by combining olive oil, crushed garlic, lots of oregano, and a dash of pepper.

Sandwiches: Surprise your family with a delicious herb-seasoned mayonnaise. It is especially delicious with roast beef, but it can make any sandwich taste gourmet!
